Coming to the movies if there is a suspense also it may be just for maximum three hours. After that you will come out of the theatre without any suspense and you will forget about that. I think this is the main reason which made the author come to the above conclusion. But movies are made much better than TV serials in all respects. Technical values, action, music and all other points of the movies will be far better than TV serials.
Personally, when I don't get time to watch full movie, I watch in parts.
Serial, as the author mentioned, that it's streamed or telecasted for 22mins, approximately 30 mins, is a series of atleast 3 episode, which is for one day. The 3 episode are telecasted daily and after say, 100 episode creates a show. Now, to watch 100 episode, we need to devote a huge number of hours. And, I personally, believe that instead of spending huge number of hour to know the ending part of the show is a mere time waste.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

It is the personal choice of people how they like to spend their time or leisure. Some people don't watch tv serials, rather, they watch movies. My personal choice is - some comedy shows instead of movies or tv serials, sometimes, I watch short movies which have a length between ten minutes to twenty minutes only. They are based on a particular topic.
